On August 1, 2009, Arts Are Basic moved to Doane University as a partner program of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). Rhea Gill continues as the director of AAB. With this move, the mission of AAB has not changed from the original vision of Kit Voorhees, who as coordinator of educational outreach for the UNL College of Fine and Performing Arts, started AAB in 1989. However, with the move the constituency for AAB has been expanded to include not only current Nebraska high school teachers and the community organizations supported through the MYArts Project, but also college faculty and college students in teacher education programs.
CETL's mission is to serve as a catalyst for individual and institutional growth and development in pursuit of transformative learning.
